One-Year Anniversary of Corey Haim's Death

This was the Corey I loved. 

A year ago today on March 10, 2010, we learned that a part of our 1980s childhood was now gone. Corey Ian Haim found dead at 38. Reports from TMZ saying, "Actor Corey Haim died this morning of an apparent overdose -- possibly accidental -- according to LAPD," caught the attention of '80s kids everywhere.

Last year at this time, Corey fans from all over the world vented about the tragic loss via emails, YouTube videos (vlogs), blog posts and more. My first thoughts went to Corey Feldman. My heart broke for Feldman who blogged about the loss of his dear friend.

As a big time Corey Feldman fan, Corey Haim had always been one of  "The Two Coreys." I loved Haim in his early movies such as the TV movie A Time To Live and films including: Secret Admirer, Murphy's Romance, First Born, Silver Bullet and Lucas. He seemed nice, innocent, kid-next-door who'd ride bikes with you and overlook your faults.

As he transitioned from child actor to teen idol, my crush faded. I think I felt he had become "Cool Corey." I was chubby and awkward -- I wouldn't have had a chance to date him if we were classmates. I never got into The Lost Boys and the teen comedies he did with Corey Feldman like License to Drive and Dream A Little Dream. Though the crush had faded, Corey Haim has always had a dear place in my heart.

Cool Corey was slightly intimidating.

It's a shame what happens to actors sometimes. A real shame that they turn to drugs. R.I.P.

I didn't know Corey Feldman had a blog! I gotta check that out!

WOW - I can't believe it's been a year already. I still remember when I heard the news. I had SUCH a big crush on him and when I saw that reality show he had with Corey Feldman shortly before he died, I remember how sad I felt for him.

Lost Boys was great. It would have sucked had the two Corey's not been in it.

I can't believe it's been a year. I'm so glad that you mentioned his earlier work because it seems like all people mention is The Lost Boys, which wasn't even his best contribution as an actor!

There really should have been a third Corey.

Lost Boys ruled!

Do you remember the movies he did with Nicole Eggert? They weren't blockbuster hits by any means... "Just One of the Girls" not to be confused with "Just One of the Guys" (which I loved), but I digress. Also, "Blown Away", this one had Feldman in it as well.
